    The red is not too bright. I like the fit but it would be better if I wasn't so curvy. It would look better if it was more fitted vs flare. I decided to keep it because it is a classic dress. It will be perfect if you have a straight shape.

      I bought this dress in black as a workwear basic. (Workwear, for me, is typically dress pants or a skirt with a nice top/sweater, or a tailored dress.) I love it! I originally ordered the 4R and 6R to compare, based on Boden's "fit predictor" tool, and they were both too big. I almost settled for the 4R, but I'm glad that I decided to order the 2R because it is much cuter when it fits right! A tailored dress like this can either look matronly or classic: too big = matronly, vs. fitted correctly = classic. Just a heads-up!

        This classic a-line shape is flattering is nice for me because I have a small(ish) waist but larger hips that I don't like to accentuate. The material is lightweight, and the lining helps it drape nicely.

          My dear dad passed away recently and I needed a dress for his funeral and the memorial celebration afterwards. I wanted something simple, dignified, and classy in a black or navy hue. I turned straight to Boden and hoped I could find what I needed in the winter clearance section. I got exactly what I was looking for. My dad always complimented me when I looked nice, and he would've liked this. Thank you, Boden.

          One inch too short makes it look costumy

          I loved the fit of this dress, but I sent it back for 2 reasons. It was hitting at the top of my knee and the full skirt was TOO full. That combination made it look costumy. I am a petite and have short legs, so I can't imagine how this dress will look on someone with longer legs. It was ONE inch too short. I usually love this type of cut because I am a pear shape, so everything that is A line looks good on me. Again, the fit was very nice, but the petite dress was ONE INCH shorter than it should have been to keep the good proportions going, so even though I loved it, it did look disporportionate. So, with a heavy heart, I returned it. The skirt could have been a tiny little bit less full and that wouln't have detracted from the dress. I'm so bummed.

            I anxiously awaited this dress to arrive. It is a beautiful shape but there was one con that I couldn't get past. The sleeves were too long. They gave the dress a dowdy look. I tried throwing a cardigan over but the sleeves were too thick. Plan on belting the dress it definitely needs one.

                  I ordered this dress in a 2 & 4. I'm petit except for my biceps are muscular/large from heavy lifting. This dress is GORGEOUS! But did not fit my arms in the size 2. The arm in the size 4 fit however I have a small frame the 4 was too big every where else. I would have loved to wear this dress but didn't feel like taking it to a tailor to have the arms let out thus returned. The red color and quality is stunning.

                  True to Bodens standards, this was a well made dress with a full lining but it was a very heavy fabric and the wool is itchy. I ordered 8L and am a 36B, the dress fit in the chest but that was it. It was like a sack dress with no form in the waist, way too much fabric in the hips and the arm length just seemed very odd. This is going back.

                    Got this red dress because it was on sale and I didn't have anything good to wear to special occasions during the winter season. It looks very sophisticated and I really like the lining under the wool dress which doesn't make it itch. The cut was good though the bottom end of the sleeves were too wide for my taste. They gave the upper part of the dress too much of a t-shirt shape. Since I really liked the dress though, I brought it to my tailor who added a few stitches to pull in the end of the sleeves. Turned out to look exactly how I wanted and only cost me an extra $20 to tweak (still made the dress a good deal since it had a big sale discount).
                    The dress is simple and quite conservative so I plan on wearing it with some accessories such as a thin black belt with my black boots or a nice statement necklace. I'm happy to have a dress like this one which I can style in so many different ways.
